Here's something you can be certain of: With a name like Death & Taxes, it's bound to be a great cocktail. The guys behind the bar at FIG start with Buffalo Trace bourbon and blend it with lillet blanc, aperol, apricot, and dolin dry vermouth. The result is stunning: The lillet and apricot cut the harsh bourbon with mild hints of fruit, while the aperol gives it a slight floral bouquet. Try one on the evening of April 15 — the complex, bittersweet cocktail is the perfect remedy for a somber occasion.
